EXTRA CARE HOUSING

A flagship housing scheme is now under construction that will allow more people to live independently, whilst getting the care and support they need.

Due to open in 2017, the £80m scheme comprises 316 apartments at three different locations within the city – Hall Road, Leads Road and Hawthorn Avenue.

The new homes will enable older people, working age people with disabilities or mental health, to live independently in a modern, secure and vibrant environment.
